Beverley discovered her love of books while growing up in, the then, small city of Barrie, Ontario Canada. With her love of books and romance, she always wished that everyone would find their happily ever after. Add in her love of London, England set in a period when ladies strived to be genteel and dresses could barely fit through doors, and it was obvious she could write nothing but historical romances.
As the mother of one too bright and mischievous young boy, she pulls full-time duty on all fronts. When she's not working full-time, mothering, writing or reading, she's probably sleeping and dreaming of a time when she'll have time for her favorite hobbies: knitting, crocheting and sewing.
Beverley has lived on two continents, in three countries, two provinces, and four states. She stopped her nomadic existence and settled in the southeast. All things artistic feed her creative passion, but none more than writing. Readers can visit her at: www.beverleykendall.com.
The Love Letter:
My Darling Alex,
Your son, Nicholas, turned two years today. I wish you could see him. He might not look a thing like you but he does have your temperament. He’s bright and terribly inquisitive and oh so very precocious. I should be proud if he turned out to be half the man you are.
Yesterday should have been our second anniversary. I’ve been marking the days on the calendar dreading its arrival. I cried myself to sleep last night wondering how you spent the day, wishing so very much that I could be with you.
Believe me, my love, I didn’t want to leave you. I would not have left had I any other choice. But I loved you too much to taint your name with scandal. I love you still and shall for the rest of my life.
I pray that one day I might see you again. And it is my greatest wish that I can finally introduce you to our son for there is nothing I want more than for him to know you and you him.
My heart will never be truly whole while I’m apart from you. I live for the day that I will see you again. I pray you haven’t forgotten me for I will never forget you.
Always your loving Charlotte

A man devastated by love
After three years of carousing and debauchery, Alex Cartwright, heir to the Duke of Hastings, has put his life back in order. Having embraced sobriety for two years, he has no intention of revisiting the past or risking his heart again. But the return of the very woman who introduced him to the darkest side of hell brings not only the painful, haunting memories of bittersweet love and abandonment, but the son he never knew he had...
A woman silenced by secrets
Threatened by the revelation of a secret that could destroy her family’s place in society and forever tarnish a dukedom, Charlotte fled England on her wedding day five years ago. Now, although it appears that secret is safe, when Alex discovers her other secret—their son—Charlotte has an altogether different battle ahead. She must now fight one love to hold onto the other—the man whose touch still makes her burn, for the child who is her very world.
